I have a huge storage of historical photos. Many of them are part of my book. For space reasons, however, I could not publish many of these great photos in my book.
Today I present you two old extraordinary photos from the years 1964 and 1965.
The picture from 1964 shows the late master Hanshi Ichikawa of Doshinkan performing Kata Gojushiho. The other picture shows different disciples of the Shudokan Dojo, among them today's masters Nakayama Hanshi, Tanaka Hanshi and Ichikawa Nobuo Hanshi, today's leader of Karatedo Doshinkan.

In this blog I would like to answer some of your questions about the book. In addition, there are a variety of photos and interesting stories that have not found entry into the book. Furthermore, the blog should serve to give you new historical insights immediately, so you do not have to wait for the second edition of my book.
